Immigration is a complicated issue. It’s also become one that is highly contentious. Over the last decades, there have been many changes to the nation’s immigration laws. In the process, many people are not entirely sure of the kind of laws that may govern their individual circumstances. This is true for employers as well. An employer may not be up on the latest ruling. They may accidentally engage in immigration fraud. Someone may have hired someone who is not eligible to work in this country. It’s really important for each person who is facing potential immigration fraud charges to be aware of what such charges involve. There may be minor penalties such as fines. The employee or private individual who engages in such fraud may be facing additional penalties. For example, someone who is here on a visa may have overstayed the visa. In that case, they could be facing deportation to their home nations. They may also be confronting possible confiscation of the goods they have acquired while living and working here illegally. A good immigration lawyer is someone who can help sort out these issues.

Possible Penalties

Many possible penalties exist for those who choose to knowingly break American immigration laws. Such penalties may also apply to those who break them but are not aware they have done so. For example, the employer may assume that the identification they are given is accurate but it later turns out it was fraudulent. An employee may state they are here legally to the employee verbally but this is not true. An immigration fraud lawyer can help by indicating what the employee and the employee can expect when confronting officials with this matter. They may point out that certain penalties may not be applied. For example, if the employer has acted in good faith, this can be a mitigating factor in any possible prosecution. An employee may have also acted in good faith and merely made a minor mistake. The lawyer can help both sides. They can offer each person the counsel they need to figure out what’s going to happen as any case heads to the court system.

Changing Laws

Laws governing immigration are federal in nature. At the same time, there are local laws that may impact the federal process. This is very much true in New York City. City officials have indicated their opposition to laws they feel are too harsh. This may lead to local officials refusing to let federal officials know about a specific violation. Local officials may also choose to avoid enforcing certain laws or notifying they have a certain person in custody even if that person may be eligible for deportation. This can be used to great advantage. A lawyer can help negotiate with local law enforcement officials in order to make sure that they doing their best for their clients and helping that client avoid any unwanted legal consequences. Lawyers who specialize in this form of law are also typically on top of the local laws in New York City and understand how to work with a local judge and other regional New York City law enforcement officials directly.

Mustering Publicity

In addition to providing legal counsel, a lawyer may also suggest a campaign to alert local elected officials about a given case. Many local legislators do not agree with national immigration laws. They may be willing to provide a personal bill in the legislature that is designed solely to provide legal redress for a given client. A personal bill of this type can help any client avoid potential consequences such as a fine or even jail time and then deportation. The lawyer can also help create a strategy that appeals to local community members and gets them interested in their case. It helps to find a lawyer who knows exactly how to craft a specific message for the needs of any given client. A lawyer with previous experience is a must as the case goes forward. In many instances, it is possible to lean on immigration officials and negotiate individually favorable conditions for each client. Proper legal representation can help anyone overcome any issues related to any kind of immigration fraud allegations.
